Eulalie d' Mandeville was one of the first women in American history to become the equivalent of a self-made millionaire.

When adjusted for inflation her amassed fortune in the 1840s was $4.2 million.

Media forged
Marxist revisionists prefer to ignore successful
black women like Eulalie Mandeville and
project of image of extreme white supremacy.
That strategy deprives talented and intelligent
black women of the self-respect and
personal esteem necessary for success
while instilling a hopeless spirit of defeatism.
One would think that such a brilliant and enterprising American woman would be honored as a national heroine. Mandeville amassed her fortune by establishing a wholesale distribution company in New Orleans. She purchased various dry-good products from abroad, warehoused them in Plaquemines Parish, and distributed those products to a vast network of retailers.

Ever the conscientious business woman, Mandeville reinvested her profits in stocks, real estate, and discounted bank notes. Her amassed fortune, $155,000, may seem paltry in today's deflated dollars, but in the mid 1840s that was the equivalent of $4,189,189.19 [source].


There are two primary reasons why the memory of Mandeville has been scrubbed by history revisionists.

First, Mandeville was a black woman.

Second, she thrived in the antebellum South.

Her success runs contrary to the revisionists' depiction of American history. Her legacy doesn't fit their false narrative! We are led to believe that our heritage is a tale of white supremacy in which no black person could advance beyond menial labor or slavery, let alone become a highly respected business person.

That Mandeville thrived in the midst of the place and time that represents the most reprehensible racism known to humanity does more than challenge the revisionist narrative of our racist past. It demolishes it. We are supposed to be shamed by a history of white repression of all non-whites when, in reality, our culture has always embraced and admired industrious people, regardless of their ethnic origins.

Her gender only increases the embarrassment of revisionists.


Dare we suggests that revisionists are the true racists?

By scrubbing American history of successful black women like Eulalie d' Mandeville, revisionists succeed in convincing us that we are the progeny of racial injustice that demands retribution, even reparations. Truth be damned.

Revisionism is racist in that it misrepresents the altruism innate to white people.

Revisionism is also racist in that it robs black Americans, women in particular, of successful role models.


Cultural Marxism plays a lyrical tune of black entitlement and victimization. It convinces intelligent black Americans that their efforts at self-advancement are futile; that economic achievement is deprived them by white privilege. Black women are convinced that there is no point in even trying to succeed. The system is now and has always been stacked against them.

Revisionism is racist in that it demeans all black Americans as a class of humans incapable of overcoming obstacles. In reality Eulalie d' Mandeville and others like her proved that the formula of Western culture coupled with free markets, ingenuity, and sweat equity is a doorway to prosperity opened for anyone with talent, intelligence, and the initiative to apply themselves.

While Mandeville was a free-born black woman who has been effectively erased from American history by revisionists, there were other enterprising black women in the antebellum South who were not free.

Mary Ann Wyatt was a Virginian slave who rented herself (and her five children) for $45 per year for ten years. During this time Wyatt established an oyster retail business. Each week she would travel sixteen miles to the Rappahannock River and buy two baskets of oysters which she sold on the town square to local residents in King and Queen County. Wyatt earned enough profit to purchase properties including a rental house.

Yes, black American slaves were allowed to own property. Did you know that? What other facts are revisionists hiding from us? Click here for Black history they don't want you to know.


Revisionists find it impossible to hide the legacy of Oprah Winfrey and her multi-billion-dollar media empire. After all, her face has been omnipresent on our televisions for decades.

Today's Eulalie d Mandeville is
Taysha Valez who made her
fortune in the cosmetics and
telecom industries
by the age of 23.
They do, however, ignore the success of Taysha Valez. This New York-born black billionaire is the founder of TRImyTAY Telecom Inc. She found her fortune by the age of 23 as the founder and CEO of H.Couture Beauty LLC (she was born April 22, 1982). She obviously had the insight, integrity, and intelligence to ignore revisionists.

The Mainstream Marxist Media (MMM) often highlights the successes of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg,  Microsoft's Bill Gates, or investor Warren Buffett. Showcasing rich white males fits neatly in the revisionist narrative.

Today's Eulalie d' Mandeville -- Taysha Valez -- remains hidden from view. Cultural Marxism finds her success anathema to their tale of white privilege in a nation where intelligent black women are presumed to be locked out of opportunities for success.

It's history revisionism in real time.

Also hidden from view is the fact that the net worth of the average single American black woman is a paltry five dollars ($5) [source]. That would be nineteen cents ($0.19) in 1840 .

  1. While it's great that you've written such an evocative, and to the best of my knowledge, accurate profile of Eulalie Mandevile, you neglected to mention that she was the half-sister of Bernard de Marigny, a Louisiana native French marquis and scion of one of the richest families in the state. That Eulalie was raised as his sister in the same household--much like anyone else's half-sister, regardless of race--and received significant property as family gifts, only serves to illustrate how utterly un-Southern New Orleans was, and is. It was, and is, a Caribbean culture that actually shares little in common with the Anglo South. Eulalie actually reflected the progressive side of New Orleans, a multi-cultural embrace without parallel anywhere else in America, and certainly totally unlike anywhere else in the South. This takes nothing from Eulalie's story--she was a truly remarkable woman who greatly increased the family holdings allotted to her and who should indeed be formally immortalized and commemorated. But the real reason her story has never been widely known is because the Anglo-Southerns who moved to New Orleans in the antebellum era felt threatened by the example set by the city's large and prosperous free black community, which they felt would make the slaves less resigned to their lot. After the Civil War, official segregation was established to reduce their influence and, sadly, it did. In other words, her story doesn't quite fit your narrative either. But thanks for writing about her, nonetheless, nicely worded despite the noteworthy omissions.
